It’s not the gift-giving season yet, but frenzied sales make it seem as if everyone has a wish list, from personal electronics and toys to the latest kitchen gadget and fashions.
Jumping ahead of Amazon Prime Days Tuesday and Wednesday is Walmart Big Save Event Sunday through Thursday.
Target Deal Days and Best Buy sales this week are also trying to lure away Amazon customers. To compete with free shipping, chain stores allow people to buy online and pick up the items faster curbside at the store or in the store.
